There is only one cinema provider, Cinescape but a fact well worth knowing is that all cinemas in Kuwait have discounted prices all day on Mondays! This means you may have to book ahead for popular movies and it doesn't cover 3D films but it is a great offer.

There is censorship on movies, so some parts may have been edited which can be a little strange to watch. You may see children watching adult movies (at night too) and there also may be some chatting within the theatre, but the seats are very comfortable and roomy. It is however worth taking a jumper with you as the air conditioning in the cinemas is often over exuberant and even colder than in the Mall itself.

The English daily newspapers e.g. The Arab Times have daily listings and timings of what is showing at the cinemas which is very useful. It is a good idea to book ahead if at all possible, especially on Mondays and if there is a group of you. You can do this and check all shows and timings on-line at or telephone enquiries on 1803456
